A Yale-NUS College graduate, Mr Nicholas Carverhill, was recently awarded a Rhodes Scholarship to pursue a master of philosophy degree in development studies.
Mr Carverhill will start his Oxford fellowship next year. He is one of 95 outstanding young women and men who are awarded the scholarship each year.
The 22-year-old studied urban studies and global affairs at Yale-NUS.
At Yale-NUS, Mr Carverhill, who is from Saskatoon, Canada, managed an online undergraduate publication on global affairs, and was the founding president of the college’s debate society.
Dr Trisha Craig, Yale-NUS’ dean of international and professional experience, said Mr Carverhill’s work crosses disciplinary boundaries and his commitment to marginalised populations spans borders.
